This beautiful strait is the result of the Marbore River’s erosion in Lorestan province that crosses the Zagros Mountains and cuts hard rocks to create such a pristine and beautiful atmosphere that is not unlike the Qeshm Star Valley. It is said that the current river which goes through this gorge is famous for its snakes, so if you go to the gorge you will probably see a water snake.
The first time you enter the gorge you will see a turquoise blue and sometimes green and blue water passing through the hard rocks and uniquely polishing the stones. Reaching the middle of the gorge you’ll find small and large ponds where small blue snakes crawl and give a

The middle of the gorge is the best place for swimming because it has the
the most depth and you can dive easily without a fear, but be sure to thoroughly
check the environment before swimming or diving, as nature is constantly
changing and it’s a bit unpredictable.
